Oliver Twist | [Charles Dickens]

Oliver Twist

Set in London's backstreet slums, Oliver Twist is the story of a workhouse orphan captured and thrust into a den of thieves, where some of Dickens' most depraved villains preside: the incorrigible Artful Dodger; the barbarous bully Bill Sikes; and the terrible Fagin, whose knavery threatens to send them all to the gallows. This was the first of Dickens' works to depict realistically London's impoverished underworld, and to illustrate his belief that poverty leads to crime.

Publisher's Summary

Set in London's backstreet slums, Oliver Twist is the story of a workhouse orphan captured and thrust into a den of thieves, where some of Dickens' most depraved villains preside: the incorrigible Artful Dodger; the barbarous bully Bill Sikes; and the terrible Fagin, whose knavery threatens to send them all to the gallows. This was the first of Dickens' works to depict realistically London's impoverished underworld, and to illustrate his belief that poverty leads to crime. At the heart of the drama, however, is Oliver, the orphan whose unsullied goodness leads him to salvation and who represents Dickens' belief in the principle of good triumphing at last.

What the Critics Say

    "Some technical problems"

    The reading of this book is good and I am enjoying it. The only problem I have is the technical problems. A few times there is a couple of lines which have been repeated. More of a problem is when the reading of a chapter has been cut short. The first time was only a few lines but the second time cut a lot of CH 26. I am only half way through the book and am hoping its not going to happen again. Again other than these the reading is good and is well worth getting - that's if the problems don't get worse.
